Where is your very first Megadrive/Genesis now?

Post by hotrodx » Fri Apr 12, 2019 4:18 pm

I had a model 1 MegaDrive, which I bought just before Sonic 2 arrived. I remember having Sonic 1, 2. SOR2, TMNT, Gaiares, Super Hang On, Chakan, Tiny Toon Adventures, Mazin Saga, and Galaxy Force II.

I sold it (with the carts) much later to add some money to buy a Saturn.

My adult self regrets selling them. Sure, I can play these on emulators, but it would have been nice if I've kept them and handed them down to my kids.

Do you still have your first Megadrive?

I bought a Gen2 + CD2 back in 1992. It's sitting on a TV stand not 5 feet away from me. In 1994, I got a 32X for it, and it's all still working fine. I use it for most of my dev checking. The sound isn't as good as a CDX I got later, but it's good enough for testing.

Around the launch of Sonic 3 in Europe I bought my first MegaDrive, in fact I changed a used GameGear with several games for a new MegaDrive with Sonic 1, 2 & 3.
Muuuuuch later I overclocked the cpu to 2x the stock speed, and a few months later the 68K said that’s enough and stop working. Since then is stored waiting for a cpu replacement that have never took place.
That’s the sad history of my 1st MegaDrive, but don’t worry, I have more specimens to play with. ;)
(24 hours ago:) More flashes! This time from the Moon, no less. Who are they? (their body isn’t blue)
